CCHL MGB Specialist, everything we do is MGB.
The MGB, for many, the affordable classic sports car which in theory should need no introduction, I imagine we have all seen or heard, sat in, driven or stared lovingly at an MGB at some point in our lives.

People interested in 60's & 70's cars will at some point have been involved to some extent with an MGB, and this is where our story begins! ... Read More!
The MGB was launched in 1962 and was hailed a great success. It was aimed directly at the US market; the car was praised not only for its modern design but also for the improved space inside and the notable upgrade the engine and gearbox enhancements gave along with better weather gear and overall ease of use.
It had some big boots to fill taking over from the MGA. Still, it looked as though MG had pulled it off with journalists and buyers all giving positive reviews, the comments proving the bold move of making the car a stronger and comfortable machine in comparison to the MGA had paid off.
The MGB was and still is a drivers car. Unlike modern cars, they have to be used and driven to fully appreciate their charm, these cars have a real soul and when used give you the feeling of genuine interaction with a machine which very few, if any modern cars can offer.
As with many things they are often undervalued at the time and the real beauty and worth of them goes unnoticed until much later in life when you sit back and appreciate what they were and what fun one had owning and driving a real iconic game-changer of a car.
